Those are so neat. May I be a bother and ask for a mini-tute?

Thanks Smiley

I don't have pics of the process, but basically it's just:

Drawn in graphics program (I use Illustrator)
Printed on glossy photo paper
Laminated (I use a xyron machine)
Cut out carefully around design
Glued (superglue gel works great) to 1 layer craft foam & let dry
Cut out so foam doesn't extend past the image
Glued eyepin between dried layer and another layer of craft foam
Trimmed excess foam
Painted on back & sides with Scribbles 3 Dimensional black paint

You could also use clear packing tape for this instead of the xyron machine.
